Fabulous for Beginners
, Melbourne, 10/10/2019

After always being into photography but never purchasing my own DLSR I decided to take a leap and purchase this camera. What a fabulous idea that was. The ease of use in this DLSR is remarkable and perfect for beginners. The image quality is amazing. It feels solid and well built in your hands, but not bulky or heavy. The rotating touch screen is extremely responsive and aids the user to get down into awkward positions without having to use the view finder. The fact that I can instantly send my pictures from the camera to my phone is amazing. I also enjoy the fact that their are so many lenses that are compatible with this camera.

Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Battery life, Screen size

Sony A6000

Sony A6000

Great Value
, Sth West Vic, 7/10/2019

Purchased a 2nd hand a6000 2 weeks ago from Ted's. Now I see why, even for a 5 year old model, it is still a very popular model. Excellent value for the price. Great videos and photos - even with kit lenses. Of course, Prime lenses will generally be sharper, but you really pay through the roof for them... bit outta my price range!

All in all, very happy with my purchase (though really wanted a full frame Sony!). If your budget is under $1000 (camera only), then you won't go wrong with the a6000, though with one caveat - not the best choice if your a vlogger. No microphone jack and the LCD screen has very limited movement. You cannot turn it around talking towards the camera and see if your in the frame or not.

Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Screen size
Cons: Battery life

Sony RX100 Mark 3

Sony RX100 Mark 3

Impressive camera, got a mark 11 and 111
, Qld, 21/09/2019

Fabulous package for the size and weight. I do have 3 SLR cameras and lens kits but the sheer lightness and ease of use makes the little Sony the go to camera.
High heat & humidity does cause the camera occasionally to switch between modes, unasked.
The image quality is very good, the choice of setting intuitive, the wi fi transfer is fast and handy to apple IPad (gen 6)and android phones.
Been on multiple big trips, and the battery life is amazing and it’s size means it is always there.
I keep looking at available other cameras and yet to find an alternative offering superior performance without spending lots.

Inca USB Charger 2x Slots w/LCD - Nikon EN-EL15

Inca USB Charger 2x Slots w/LCD - Nikon EN-EL15

Brilliant charger
, Melbourne, 15/09/2019

Originally purchased so I could charge my camera batteries while on a roadtrip without access to mains power but this has now replaced my original nikon chargers even at home. Percentage display is clear and lets you know exactly how quickly the charge is going on both batteries, when connected via fast (2amp) charging you can charge two batteries faster than the nikon charger does one, and batteries that are 'fully' charged by the nikon charger can have another 10-15% added by this charger so you even get a better bang for your buck per charge. Plenty of options for power inputs with a built-in USB cable as well as standard Micro USB B and USB C inputs.
Only nuisance is that although the LCD display has clearly marked Channel 1 / 2 in high contract white text, the markings for the charging slots are only in a fine depressed black writing so you can occasionally pull the wrong battery out.

Nikon AF-S DX 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 G ED VR

Nikon AF-S DX 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 G ED VR

Now my go to lens
, Brisbane, 12/09/2019

I bought this lens specifically for a recent trip to Tanzania (to avoid inter-changing my two other lenses,18mm - 55mm and 70mm - 200mm) coupled to my D5200. I'm totally impressed by this lens, images are sharp across the entire range as was it's focus and metering response. VR function was effective and indispensable shooting from the back of a 4wd. There's a noticeable stiffness as the barrel moves from about 70mm to 100mm as the lens mechanism shifts but that's a minor issue, apart from that it is flawless.

After this trip it's now my go to lens and, unless I'm wanting extra reach over 300mm, it's the only lens I need to take with me on future trips.

Nikon did not supply a lens hood with my lens, however there are aftermarket or genuine hoods available for $20 to $80. I ended up buying a Nikon lens hood to suit for $70. It's a minor irritation, but a strange oversight by Nikon.

Nikon AF-S 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR Zoom (FX)

Nikon AF-S 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR Zoom (FX)

Brilliant piece of kit
, Brisbane, 12/09/2019

I've used this lens for a year now, lately on a trip through the Serengeti in the back of a 4wd, matched to my D5600. Image quality is fantastic except when right up against the 500mm mark where it does become a bit soft. The ability to pull back to 200 helps when the scene (or animals) shift. It's easy to use and focus and metering were as smooth and fast with this lens as with my other smaller ones. The VR is absolutely fantastic and indispensable; I took a few comparison shots with it on and off and the difference is chalk and cheese, the VR damping down the small vibrations to produce razor sharp imaging.

It does weigh a little, about 2 and a bit kilos, but that's unavoidable. It takes only a little getting used to and clearly it's not for continual hand held use, and you should get a rest/pillow to take the weight.

When I bought the lens I hesitated a touch over the cost; now I see it as money well spent.

Pros: Easy to use, Build quality
Cons: Bulky

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 Gimbal

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 Gimbal

The Osmo Mobile 3 is a sturdy, compact gimbal. Suits the iPhone XR perfectly (even with a cover).
, Geelong, 26/08/2019

The Osmo Mobile 3 has a very nice build quality and appears to be a mixture of alloy metal (on the main gimbal arms) and textured tough plastic around the rest of the body in addition to a substantially grippy rubber handle meaning the Mobile 3 sits in your hands quite firmly even with a fairly heavy device attached. I have been using the device in conjunction with the Apple iPhone XR with the genuine clear cover attached, and the phone sits securely in the mount with no dramas at all and does not have any issues hauling/stabilising the phone even with vigorous movements which is very good for a device which sits at approx. 215 grams. Controls are nice and well suited, with the buttons being set up in convenient locations, although if you are to use the device by holding it with your left hand, the zoom button is a bit awkward however it is typically held by the right hand. Integration with the DJI Mimo Application is quick and easy with no issues pairing the two devices (which is done via Bluetooth, negating needs to plug in your device). All of the settings for camera and tracking modes are easily accessible within the app and it runs smoothly. The folding mechanism seems very sturdy so I don't believe any issues will arise from repeated opening and closing of the device, provided the device is lined up appropriately before stowing (which is demonstrated by clear markings on the device body). Overall, amazing value for money with DJI producing a high-quality stabiliser for mobile devices. Just note that some of the functions are unavailable on Android devices, so be sure to do your research on supported models/etc on the DJI website to avoid issues - iOS/Apple devices have no issues I do not think.

Canon Powershot SX620HS

Canon Powershot SX620HS

Canon Compact SX620HS
, Adelaide, 16/08/2019

I have now purchased my second SX620HS. The first was bought unwittingly on the way out of Sydney 4 years ago as a last minute travel camera. It took no time to set up and charge the battery ready for walks around Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, England, France and Germany. I installed a 32 gig SD card and started shooting. This camera lived in my pocket and in my hand through hillclimbs, motor race meetings, boat trips, rain, hail, drizzle and a couple of times under water. It did not miss a beat in 18000 photos. Finally I dropped it on it's lens and the shutter leaves fell apart. It does not take pictures of cars doing 200kph from the grand stand. You need another camera for that and I guarantee it won't fit in your pocket. The only problem I had was dust inside the lens and I will be more careful and look after the new one better. What do I like about this camera? 20 megapix makes great photos. The size, I carried it in my breast pocket and it only took 1 hour to get used to the weight. I very rarely used the flash and still got good dark shots and the flash is adequate for close up. The zoom is really worth using for picture framing and very easy to use. It irrelevant to review something you have just bought so my experience with this little camera is a description of a very simple easy to use reliable trouble free camera. I recommend this camera as a non bulky travel camera. It isn't called compact for nothing. Also the price is three fifths of what I paid three years ago.
